Running... And Spinning
Just saw a television commercial for Isaac for Mayor. Is she really selling the idea that she is in favor of local business?
In favor of stealing them, perhaps.
The ad was probably effective enough, though. Mayor Isaac should have little trouble getting past May and her ad looks like that of an incumbent. Challengers Bill Farmer and Jim Newberry are focused on each other, as they should be.
The hope here is that the anti-condemnation folks haven't forgotten what they worked the last few years on. The pro-cons definitely haven't forgotten. Should Bill Farmer get past the primary, the battle this fall will be about going backward on condemnation or concentrating on more important things, like anything else. If Newberry makes it instead, the race will inspire a stricter noise ordinance for Lexington.
Here is what I am talking about.
